From referral to post-op, my experience with Dr. Bidar and his staff was first-rate. I am very pleased with my surgical results, 4 months post-op. Occasionally, I waited past my appointment time, but it is because Dr. Bidar takes the time to answer each patient's questions thoroughly. I have referred friends to Dr. Bidar and will continue to do so. Thank you to everyone involved in my care.

Dr. Bidar's staff are amazing. Walking into the reception area, you are greeted by his warm and welcoming staff. That experience will continue as you interact with staff in the back offices. Having a procedure performed can be stressful for me however, Dr.Bidar's bedside manner is calming. His professionalism and wealth of knowledge allow me to ask questions that were essential to me. I felt very comfortable during my procedure. Post-surgery his staff as well as Dr. Bidar called (after hours) to check on my progress. They are great!

I had surgery by Dr. Bidar three months ago. Today I saw him for the first time since the day after post-op. I'm very pleased with my progress and I am looking forward to the final results. The waiting room was full when I arrived and I waited a very long time until I was called. I kept reminding myself, it wouldn't be full if he wasn't good. So, bottom line, "something so good is worth the wait". Very pleased with Dr. Bidar and his very knowledgeable and friendly staff.

I am so pleased with my needs being met by Dr. Bidar. He took the time to talk with me and listen to what was important to me and why I was seeking his opinion. He gave me understandable facts and realistic outcomes to prepare for and I felt informed each step of the way. I have had fantastic results from his work and was able to sit with him after my last appointment and share how the process was for me and how very much I am impressed with his care over these last 6 months. Thank you!

My name is Maryanne Cicinato. I first saw Dr. Bidar in the spring. My vision was so impaired by droopy eyelids that I was no longer able to drive.. I had the pleasure and honor to be his patient. He is a perfect gentleman, extremely knowledgable, and very honest. July 13th he operated on my eyes and for the first time in years i could see. I could actually see color on the tv and read again. thank you Dr. Bidar you changed my life. God bless you

I would not recommend him to any one. His office is so unorganized. They don't know how to see patients in the order of their appointments. Each time I had an appointment I had to go to the front desk to remind them that I was there. I waited for over a hour past my appointment time every time I had an appointment.

All the staff and Dr. Bidar were professional, respectful and very caring. My appointments were on time with plenty of time to ask questions. I highly recommend Dr. Bidar to everyone! If your appointment is several months out call like I did and they put me into a newly opened time. Sharon

The surgery procedure was okay. But the office has the poorest form of business practice I have ever experienced. They sent my invoice to an old address I haven't used in 1o years--the invoice went unpaid and the account went to collections all within 30 days. Despite the proof of correct address submission to the office at the time of the surgery, the office refuses to acknowledge the mistake and pull the account out of collection.
